I can't actually reproduce this consistently but I do care because *I*
use focus follows mouse all the time and often switch between two
workspaces.  I'm sure I /have/ seen it in the past but I wonder if that
was only when I was using 4.0.x

Can you reproduce it consistently?  If so can you screenshot what you
have on both windows and put an X where your mouse pointer was so I can
try and reproduce this.

Running 4.2.2 would be useful too.
